Dear Sir, Thanks for your guidance..... I can conclude that whole amount which we are getting as Washing Allowance is Tax free.....!!!
Any allowance is exempted only to the extent of actual expenditure incurred for the purpose for which it is given.
As far as I know, if you are required to wear a certain type of uniform while at work, then only you are entitled for washing allowance exemption.If you wear routine clothes at work, washing allowance is not deductible.
Certain extent means that there is a cap on the amount.
For example transport allowance is exempt for up to rs. 800 per month. Beyond that it is taxable. Education allowance used to be tax free for rs. 500 per month per child. I am told it has been increased, but I have not had time to verify the current limit.
